View Full Version : Seek pattern for leaves like this in socks
12-21-2006, 03:35 AM
I have found these divine gorgeous socks from IK I WANT I WANT.
But I can't get the magazine here as far as I can tell, even if I had a credit card, and can't find a library with it. So I'm thinking I can maybe figure a pattern out for the socks myself AFTER I work out a pattern for the leaves part. That's the hard bit.
Does anyone have or know of a free pattern for something similar to the leaf part, maybe in a scarf or something? Or anything similar (even if not leafy) in construction? On the net or from a stitch dictionary?
I'm thinking I'll start off with the Touch of Whimsy leaves and Backyard Leaves if I can't find anything closer. Any other ideas?

I found this pattern (http://www.heartstringsfiberarts.com/a38.shtm) at Hobby Lobby on clearance for about $2. It's somewhat similar. :shrug:

That sure looks like Becka's Leaves of Whimsy pattern. It's wonderful!

I think you're right, they look the same, thank you.

I think those are the socks from either IK or Vogue magazine from a year ago, I can't think of the name of the pattern. I saw it a few months after I wrote the Leaves of Whimsy socks (http://www.divaknitting.com/store/index.php?main_page=document_product_info&cPath=60&products_id=234) for Kemp's store, but they are very similar as most leafy patterns are...I'm sorry, I wrote the pattern for Kemp as a gift when she opened her store or I would give it to ya....but, you can get it for a super deal at her store, free with any purchase!
And, since you mentioned A Touch of Whimsy leaves...I'm writing a sock pattern for it at the 1st of the year, too.

Oh, I just found these (http://www.woolandwood.freewebspace.com/yukonleaves.htm) lovely socks called yukon leaves, but they aren't the leaves you are looking for....look here (http://www.knittingpatterncentral.com/directory/socks.php) to see if you see any socks that have leaves that are adapted to circular knitting, might find something that will work for ya :wink:
There are lots of st patterns here (http://www.knittingonthenet.com/stitches.htm) and here (http://www.knitting-and.com/knitting/patterns-stitches.htm), too.

Thanks guys. Becka, if I end up trying to create something based on the Leaves of Whimsy motif from your scarf or hat, I'll send you what I get. I'm still not sure whether I want that, or the Backyard Leaves motif, or something created from scratch to match the picture I listed. Yes the blogger says they're from IK.

That's so sweet of you :muah: , but you don't need to do that. I've already got the pattern written, I've just got to knit the 1st pair before I post it on my blog....I've not gotten the socks knit and pattern posted as quickly as I wanted to because the doctor has had me on bedrest for so long and I've not been able to knit much...but, I will have it posted as soon as I'm able to do so, just as I promised some time ago :wink:
Thanks a bunch, though :hug:
